im 8 months pregnant and just diagnosed with gestational diabetes. ive heard stories from 9lb-11lb babies being born so im just wondering if anyone has had gestational diabetes what are the chance that i will have a big baby? also, does this mean im going to have to have a C-section and not go through natural labor?
***FAT IS SQUISHY!*** :D :D
Big babies are not harder to birth.
Say it with me, ***FAT IS SQUISHY!*** :D :D :D
Babies with higher birth weights may just have an average sized head. And conversely, a 6.5 lb baby may have a giant head. It's the head that hurts the most. The baby's body fat is not what is hard to push out.
Bigger babies tend to settle in an optimal position for delivery, because they don't have as much room to cock their head at the wrong angle and such.
